Superb Food, the service could improve a little

This seafood restaurant is located along the river and for those by the windows it has a pleasant view, otherwise it has more of a modern bistro style.

Good view and location. The price is high, but food is average and small portions. Also they sort out guest for 2 types: locals and tourists.

Found this fish restaurant on trip advisor and with all the positive feed back we had to give it a try. We managed to book the last table at 7pm on a Thursday evening after walking in on the off chance at 6pm. The place was buzzing when we returned for our meal. The food, the staff fantastic. I don't... More

The Swiss fishes and wine are excellent, the menu has lots of choices and the food is very good. You need to book but if the weather is nice you can sit outside.

Together with five colleagues, we enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh fish with excellent wine and first class service. The location on the Quai is beautiful and ideally we would have had an outside table but nonetheless, the experience was first class and I would have no hesitation in returning.

Great location on the river with great views. Staff are happy and very friendly. My husband loved the fish and they made me a nice pesto long pasta with Parmesan, as I don't eat fish. Had a nice lemon martini which was a nice surprise flavour and enjoyed it very much. We recommend this restaurant definitely as our hotel Helmhaus... More

If you have to chose a fish restaurant in Zurich, I would recommend Bianchi. Is an Italian Restaurant, very nice and "posh", with an interesting Menu and Wine Card. You can chose between sea and Lake fish, we had the latter one and was delicious! Service is a high level one, and is aligned with the prices of the dishes... More

Off course Switzerland is now known for it's excellent fish cuisine being so far from any sea. This restaurant actually is making a very good effort to compensate for this. The two families Bianchi and Bindella started this restaurant where they combine their knowhow of fish and wines. This resulted in a fine dining restaurant where the atmosphere, service and... More
